The community garden Allmende-Kontor on Tempelhofer Feld was founded over the course of pioneer projects on the former airfield through an initiative of 13 community garden activists, researchers and friends of urban gardening and urban agriculture. The first 10 raised garden plots were created on an area of 5,000 square meters by some 20 participants on April 16, 2011. Since then, the garden and its community with more than 250 raised garden plots and over 600 co-gardeners have flourished – completely self-organized. The association Gemeinschaftsgarten Allmende-Kontor e.V. was founded on June 5, 2014.
The garden on the Neukölln side of Tempelhofer Feld has put down roots and in recent years has become a one-of-a-kind attraction in the city in the sense of education, networking and recreation. Allmende-Kontor has set itself the task of revitalizing the term “Allmende” (shared property, solidary action) and anchoring it within the topics of urban development, food sovereignty and interculturality.
